Sheena Wilkinson, author of Star by Star, is writing one postcard each month to a woman who influenced her, inspired her, helped her – and the postcard is her thank you. They will appear on our blog on the 14th of every month, right up to the end of the year! To follow them all, check in on our blog and on Twitter under #StarByStarThankYous
This month’s Star By Star Thank You is the first one to an institution. Of course an institution is essentially its people, and many people have worked to make the Glasgow Women’s Library the wonderful resource it is.
The library houses a rich archive of women’s lives and experiences as well as a superb collection of books. I was fortunate enough to spend an afternoon there recently, talking about Star by Star as part of their celebrations of Vote 100, and to be honest I didn’t want to leave.
Star By Star is very much a homage to the brave outspoken women of a century ago, and the Glasgow Women’s Library is where I’m proudest of all to see it on the shelves.
The card reads:
Thank you so much to everyone who has made the Glasgow Women’s Library such a force for good. I was so inspired by your collections, your outreach work, your welcome and your sheer enthusiasm for women’s voices. I wish there was a resource like this in every city. Thank you all! Sheena
